Trace Reporters– Information reaching our news room has indicted the clerk of Kaduna State House of Assembly, Bello Zubairu for conniving with the Secretary of Kaduna APC, Mohammed Bello Shuaibu (Amir) not to swear in Hon. Yusuf Salihu of Kaduna North and Hon. Nasiru Usman of Kaduna South.
According to a source who sought anonymity alleged that already a letter has been written to the clerk by the secretary instructing him not to obey the Federal High court order.
